Elgin Mining Releases Further Drill Results at the Bjorkdal Gold Mine

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/14/14 -- Elgin Mining Inc. (TSX:ELG)(TSX:ELG.WT) ("Elgin Mining" or the "Company") is pleased to announce further drill results from its exploration program at its wholly-owned Bjorkdal Gold Mine ("Bjorkdal Mine") in Sweden. This underground drilling is part of an ongoing program to expand the underground resource and to define areas of higher-grade mineralization. The current drilling is a follow-up to the exploration work reported during 2012 and 2013, which identified a new gold vein system ("Lake Zone") located adjacent to active mining areas that are only 200 to 400 metres below surface.

This most recent drilling was planned to test the up-dip and down-dip extensions of the Lake Zone vein system and the down-dip extensions of the 610, 620 and Main Zone vein systems, located to the southeast (see attached map). The areas of drilling of 610, 620, and Main vein systems are in zones that are actively being mined, and have produced very good mill feed grades. These zones are developed on several levels and the Company plans to continue to open up these very prospective areas for active mining later in 2014. The Lake Zone is also being extensively developed and the Company expects to be stoping a number of these veins starting in Q2/2014.

The results were very positive for all vein systems drilled, with some of the best intercepts to date including (see Table 1 and Map 1):

--  Hole DDU2013-039, which returned 2.75 metres of 2.18 g/t Au, and a
    further 14.6 metres of 7.35 g/t Au 
--  Hole DDU2013-020, which returned 2.20 metres of 22.84 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-015, which returned 5.50 metres of 3.22 g/t Au; and a
    further 2.40 metres of 18.38 g/t Au, and a further 1.60 metres of 7.11
    g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-029, which returned 1.60 metres of 10.25 g/t Au, and a
    further 0.35 metres of 162.5 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-030, which returned 1.00 metres of 33.78 g/t Au; 

Additional highlights also include (see Table 1 and Map 1):

--  Hole DDU2013-010, which returned 1.10 metres of 19.51 g/t Au, and a
    further 2.4 metres of 4.71 g/t Au, and 4.75 metres of 2.11 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-011, which returned 2.80 metres of 4.18 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-012, which returned 1.00 metres of 7.06 g/t Au, and a
    further 1.05 metres of 7.21 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-014, which returned 3.55 metres of 3.22 g/t Au, and a
    further 0.60 metres at 29.40 g/t Au, and 1.25 metres at 2.37 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-016, which returned 1.20 metres of 50.64 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-019, which returned 0.86 metres of 54.66 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-021, which returned 4.50 metres of 4.27 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-022, which returned 3.45 metres of 2.50 g/t Au, and a
    further 2.70 metres of 6.75 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-027, which returned 1.50 metres of 9.39 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-030, which returned 1.00 metres of 33.78 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-032, which returned 1.45 metres of 8.15 g/t Au; and 
--  Hole DDU2013-037, which returned 1.80 metres of 1.80 g/t Au. 

Commenting on the results, Mr. Patrick Downey, President and CEO, stated, "These results continue to show that the Bjorkdal orebody is open along strike and up and down-dip and the underground resource continues to expand. The results also show that the higher grade veins within all zones continue down dip and, due to the nature and configuration of the orebody, can be accessed with minimal development. We also recently had an outside consultant complete a structural and geological review of the deposit which showed that the zones of higher grade are located within repeat folds within the orebody. This work has led to the identification of some priority open pit and underground drill targets nearby and alongside current working areas of the pit and underground mines. We expect to begin testing these targets later this year."

Qualified Person

Exploration at the Bjorkdal Mine is being conducted under the supervision of George Friesen, P.Eng., who is the Company's Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Friesen has also reviewed and approved the technical disclosure contained in this news release as applicable.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control ("QA/QC") Procedures for the Bjorkdal Mine

In order to minimize the effects of the coarse nugget gold at the Bjorkdal Mine, the Company has elected to submit 100% of the core for analysis, rather than retaining half of the core for archive. This provides a much larger sample for gold analysis and theoretically a more representative result. The core is logged and photographed and, for the zones sampled, the entire core is shipped to ALS Chemex laboratory in Pitea, Sweden and 500 grams are analyzed for gold using an accelerated cyanide leach process. A rigorous QA/QC program is employed that involves the insertion of blanks and certified standards.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will d...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.
